  1. iCloud for Windows shows two signed in devices


    On icloud for windows in signed in devices I see 2 instances of my computer(both same id code). One is the right one running windows 10 but the other is running windows 6.2 or something really old like that. This is a fairly new computer so its never had a windows version that old. I am not very tech savvy so my first thought is “hacker!” I am worried and need information. Also when I sign into icloud it often asks me to sign in twice. What is going on?!

    Windows and Icloud Mail etc: Failing to initialise

    Hi
    TomParkinson2
    ,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below questions:

    1. Are you aware of making any changes to the computer prior to the issue?
    2. Do you receive any error message when the spinner stops?

    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: Uninstall iCloud application.


    I would suggest you to Sign out from the iCloud account from the app, then uninstall the application.

    1. Press Windows
      and R key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type appwiz.cpl and hit enter.
    3. Select the iCloud application and click on Uninstall.

    Method 2: Reinstall iCloud application.


    Step 1:

    I would suggest you toDownload
    the latest version of iCloud

    from the apple website. Follow the Onscreen instructions and install the application. For more information, check the article on
    Set up and use iCloud for Windows.


    Step 2:

    Once the installation is completed, tap on the Windows key on your keyboard, search for ICloud app. Right click on the app and click on
    Pin to taskbar.

    If you are using Surface PC, I would suggest you to follow steps mentioned in the Microsoft article about
    Using Surface with iPhone, iCloud,
    and iTunes.


    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

  4. iCloud for Windows shows two signed in devices

    Are iCloud Contacts Supposed to Sync Automatically With Windows 10 Phone People App?

    • Used OL on Windows 10 PC to create iCloud contact.
    • Contact shows in People and List view when (in OL). If I select the iCloud folder, and I select‘People’ from the bottom bar at lower left, the added contact shows in both List View and People view.

      Note: The added contact in question does NOT show on either an iPad or the Windows 10 phone People app.
    • Not sure what you mean by “sign out and sign in”. From where? PC? Phone? And how?
    If I bring up the iCloud app on PC, the Calendar and Contacts option is checked. Calendar is behaving just fine, BTW - it's only Contacts where I'm having this problem.



    Have done many, many soft resets – no joy.

    So it seems that I'm not causing a sync to occur between the Windows 10 PC and iCloud. What steps can I take to get that accomplished?

    Thanks.
